A Gordon County, Ga., man faces drug trafficking charges after officers found about $16,000 worth of methamphetamine when they searched him Tuesday afternoon during a traffic stop, a news release states.
Jessie Tyrone Sellers, 38, of Fairmount, Ga., is charged with trafficking in meth, possession of meth, possession of marijuana and obstructing law enforcement officers, according to a release posted on the Gordon County Sheriff’s Department website.
The release states Gordon County deputies were responding to a reported county ordinance violation on Ryo Mountain Road in eastern Gordon County when they met Sellers and another man in a vehicle. The two men acted suspiciously, so deputies stopped the vehicle and approached the men, who were both armed, the release says.
When deputies searched Sellers, they found 1 1/4 ounces of meth and a bag of marijuana, authorities said. Deputies also seized the vehicle and several hundred dollars in cash.
Sellers was arrested after a brief struggle, the release says.
The second man was not arrested.
